You can't expect them to treat cats any better than people
All of the cats I've ever loved should be turning over in the grave, or cringing about now.
Long story, but I don't have three of the cats that I have loved and owned for years right now - they belong to someone else, and three are in heaven. My love of cats is matched only by my awe of the cruelty that we know people who are cruel towards people (we've heard about persecution in China) can have towards animals. Death camps for cats in China? Me and my cat are going ballistic over here!
Surprisingly, I'm suddenly happy that PETA exists and am wishing they could do something about this!
